Videos explaining things. Mostly over topics like history, geography, economics and science.

We believe that the world is a wonderfully fascinating place, and you can find wonder anywhere you look. That is what our videos attempt to convey.

Currently, I try my best to release one video every week. Bear with me :)

Not a paradox
OoJoshioO
Super alles auf deutsch bis auf das Video und der Untertitel,der Channel regt mich immer mehr auf,jedesmal die selbe Scheisse.Daumen runter.

If they’re so dedicated to find out, why don’t they just bring a 30cm ruler and go around the whole coastline. Simple
Bob B.
In short limits

how do i get a thousand mile long measuring tape?
What a delicious alias
Well people could just walk the distance (if they can) over a period of time and use a sports tracker app to see how much the distanve is thou. If that seems too long have each person walk a couple of kilometres and just add those numbers together. Just and idea but, could possibly work.
Five Sigma
Does this mean if I measure the outline of my dick at a high enough resolution I will get a more satisfactory answer?
ChaeDoc
The length of the Norwegian coastline is 1.
Alvin Figueroa
THAT was the most clever product placement I’ve ever seen. Well done!
Mike Hayward
I can't see this paradox. Nothing about any coast is "infinite"
Umesh Devegowda
It was 1000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 miles long

1337000 kilometers long

Just send a team around the coast with an odometer. It might take a while, but hey, it works.

Why am I not surprised that we got the nr.2 spot? LOL

This sounds like the kind of situation where you would get a "legal answer". You know, like when the government just needs a precedent to be set for their law and just says "fuck it, arbitrary standard based on what an average business would do". Like when they declared tomatoes are a vegetable tax item, not a fruit tax item, because you buy tomatoes alongside carrots and radishes, not alongside apples and berries.
In this case, it sounds like the government would do something like, say, hire a railroad company to (pretend to) lay down tracks and just measure that
Kevin Labrecque
Think about Bar Harbor & New Orleans area : we take for granted that these are American soils but maybe it's not the case ! Look at Republic of West Florida and Republic of California : not all the states have ratified the Constitution ... but you know ... we're sheeps. Let's ask TV.
Young Dark G
just put some rope or something around the coast then pull it together and calculate the length of the rope
T-tz
Just use integrals
AnyHeartsNSN
You said the wrong number of miles for the CIA compared to what your wrote
Luke Coyle
How hard is it to just agree on a universal measuring system where we all go 'okay, 100metres of whatever is how we measure it'

What if the Mongol Empire Reunited The Coastline Paradox Explained 2 days ago   12:16

The Mongol Empire at it's height took up 16% of all the land on Earth and controlled 1 out of every 4 people on the planet, a 13th century superpower. It's presence was very brief compared to other empires, but what if the Mongol Empire was suddenly recreated today with the same borders they had at their apex? This video attempts to answer that question using data analysis and statistics from readily available information and data.
